Potter Legacy, Chapter 2

The Potters are very poor.  Funny thing about being the founding generation of a legacy.  There is no money.  Gwen’s career as an athlete is not paying well yet.

Cecil plays with his toy duck in a puddle on the bathroom floor.  At this point, they don’t have a bathtub.

Cecil takes the initiative to take a nap.

Travis hacks several of the funds to pay for a bathtub so that stinky Cecil can become not stinky.

Gwen finds this pregnancy exhausting.  She spends all of her time either sleeping or peeing or eating.  Cecil is constantly waking her up for attention.

When Cecil has a nightmare, he tries to get some comfort from Travis.

“Just a minute kid.  I have almost beat this dungeon.”  “Daddy!”

Once the level is beaten, Travis spends a little time with Cecil and then puts him back to bed.

Then, the exhausted parents put Cecil to bed, and head to bed for a good night’s sleep.  Cecil wakes up refreshed and ready to play.  Both parents are still asleep, so he sets off to explore.  Inquisitive kid wants to see what he finds.  What he finds is a garden around the block.  He should have gone potty before leaving on his walkabout.

Tired Cecil is tired.  The walk home seems so long, he tries to call for his parents, but they can’t hear him.

Seeing a bench on the other side of the garden, he heads over and lays down.

When his parents wake up, they realize he has slipped out of the house.  Gwen takes a plate of spaghetti and tracks him down.

She lets him have some food, then she scolds him for leaving the house in the middle of the night, and then she takes him home and puts him to bed.

And, oh yeah, there is a new baby in the house.

Welcome, Cyrus, to the Potter legacy.

Unfortunately, Cyrus makes his appearance while Cecil is waiting to be fed.  Cecil is not a happy camper.  He is hungry and he did not want a baby brother.

Finally, Cecil gets some applesauce and Cyrus gets the boob.

Cecil shows displeasure by throwing his dinner on the floor.

For which he gets scolded by Gwen.

Displeased toddler is angry and yelling at Gwen.

Forgotten toddler falls asleep in his high chair.  The pictures are fairly random.

Because Cyrus keeps waking up crying, Cecil heads for the couch to try to get some sleep.

He watches Cyrus become a toddler.  He is not quite sure he likes this change.

The first thing Cyrus asks for is hugs.

The brothers chilling on the couch.

Pouting because mom went to work.

Followed by dad.

There are hugs for cheering up.

But they don’t work so well.  Synchronized crying.

When Travis gets home, he reads to the boys and then puts them to bed.

So, I didn’t realize toddlers could get sick.  4 months of toddlers, lots of toddlers, and Cecil is the first one to get sick.  He gets the shits gas and giggles disease.

Cecil takes Cyrus on a walkabout to his favorite bench.  Eventually they head home to end the week.  I might have to try switching to a new house while there are toddlers on walkabout just to see how the game handles nonactive wandering toddlers.

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of Boolprop.net since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
